Vibrant mix of colour and textures
Tamara's love of colour and her exotic aesthetic led her to explore a way to make women's handbags and accessories both timeless and yet rich, colourful and exciting. She designs the bags to be practical and unique. Pieces that stand alone and can be worn with anything- rather like an item of jewellery.
All the collections are ethically made in 2 small artisanal family run workshops in Italy who Tamara works closely with to perfect the designs and shapes. All are made in limited numbers.
The laser cut leather collection uses the highest quality leather and suede. The cut-out design was inspired by Tamara's love of decorative and ancient stone carving. The shapes are classical with a modern twist that defies fleeting trends, making these bags timeless pieces worn day or night, work or pleasure. A colour choice of black or nude in Saffiano textured leather for a classic look, to the exotic deep reds and denim/ electric blue, or the very vibrant 'Paradise' limited edition colour which combines deep rich orange and sky blue calf skin- all lined with contrasting rich soft real suede.
To compliment the leather laser cut collection Tamara has developed a collection of stunning digitally printed bags in a range of shapes and sizes. After much research Tamara chose a material developed by a renowned Italian manufacturer that can be digitally printed with vibrant colour and is strong and durable. The result a 'stand out' colourful textured material with each printed panel designed uniquely for the bag shape. The bags are trimmed with a complimentary high shine leather to give it structure and strength. Each bag shape has been carefully thought through to provide practicality and style. With a choice of colours that range from classic black, chocolate brown and beige to a more vibrant and fun Cherry red. All have been made by experts in Italy to the highest standards.
